Top 5 Myths About Staying at a Bed & Breakfast

Travelers were asked by the California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns if they had ever stayed at a bed and breakfast, some of their answers led to the discovery of interesting myths surrounding B&Bs. 1. B&B decor is limited to lace doilies, paisley or floral wallpaper, antiques, & patchwork quilts. While many B&B are like visiting a bygone era…At Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed and Breakfast [Grandville, MI] our rooms have been professionally decorated in a timeless manor. Each room is decorated after a different part of the world says Cheri Antozak owner, innkeeper and designer of Prairieside Suites. Our spacious themed rooms create an experience in themselves. We have a Tuscan Villa, a Southern Mansion, a Spanish Hacienda, a French Riviera and an English Cottage suite.

You have to share a bathroom with other guests? The majority of inns offer private bathrooms and at Prairieside Suites each guest room has it’s own private luxury bathroom with Whirlpool tub, showers, heated towel bars & heated toilet seats. 3. You have to eat breakfast with total strangers? Many inns offers guests a variety of choices for breakfast and pride themselves on accommodating guests with special diets or food allergies and we do too. At Prairieside Suites, we offer breakfast three different ways so our guests choose the experience they want. a. We serve a full hot candle light breakfast in our dining room every morning @ 9:30 b. Or we’ll deliver a full hot breakfast to the privacy of your room @ 10am [for a $15.00 room service fee] c. OR we’ll pack your “IN” room refrigerator with a deluxe continental breakfast so you can snuggle, sleep in and eat on YOUR schedule with full privacy. 4. You have to abide by a curfew set by the innkeeper? Curfews are one of the most common myths. At Prairieside Suites upon arrival our guests are given a warm house welcome and we use keyless entry codes so they may easily come and go as they please during their entire stay with us. 5. B&Bs are only for couples and strictly prohibit children and pets? Many inns offer a family units with multiple bedrooms and or a pet-friendly room as well. At Prairieside Suites our Southern Mansion is a flexable room that can be turned into a family suite that is also pet friendly. So we have three packages to address these needs.
